Get rid of the "Spare Tire" through brain power

By Juli Decati

If, like everyone else, you're hoping to lose weight, you'd be surprised what will help you lose weight. Diet? Sure, but that's not the end of it. Exercise? Of course, but there's something that get's you out of the door-your mind.

Step one, you must picture in your mind what you losing weight looks like. What does it look like? You must see in your mind the changed you.

Take this simple task for example, change the way you think about shedding the extra pounds. If you have to revert to the "I think I can, I think I can" philosophy, to get you motivated, do that. Don't think of it as a chore or a job, which can have negative connotation, think of it as fun, doing something for yourself for 20 minutes a day.

Be happy with the choice that you have made to improve your life and get rid of that "middle tire". Start small with your food choices; you don't have to eat perfectly all the time. Eat healthy 90% of the time, and be realistic that you will crave unhealthy things. That way when you do eat something unhealthy, you will know it's a treat and not something you will indulge in all of the time.

There you have it for the mind and meals. Exercise and diet are, of course, the great weapons in your arsenal in the war against your weight. But this tried and true strategy is useless without enlisting your mind. If your mind is not convinced, you're doomed to failure no matter the diet or exercise regimen.
